- Your Journey to Recovery  -



We are a group of passionate individuals in recovery including indigenous men and women and have been in business for 3 years. Our mission is helping our Native relatives to recover from drug and alcohol addiction.  This program is for both men and women who are enrolled tribal members and are willing to make a commitment to completing a 60-90 day treatment program.

Our network of facilities are the finest Native American treatment facilities in Southern California.  All facilities offer Native traditional and ceremonial practices including sweat lodge, as well as cultural and/or Wellbriety groups.


Admissions to these facilities occurs at the beginning of every month and per ethical industry standards they will provide travel arrangements to their facility and back home upon completion.  Clients will have access to their family and loved ones throughout the treatment process.  Our networked facilities are smaller facilities which provide personalized care and evidence based practice which truly makes them the finest facilities.

Ha Weh! My name is Madalyn and I am a member of the Osage tribe from the Osage reservation in Oklahoma. In a few days I will be one year clean and sober from my addiction and alcoholism. Transitions Wellness was there for me every step of the way, even before I got the plane. They were there for every struggle, cheered me on with every victory and loved me until I learned how to love myself. I am grateful to say that Transitions Wellness helped me get my life back." - Madalyn W.


"Transitions wellness had my best interest at heart, the time and and energy that was put into my recovery was vital to my well being as a recovering addict. I will be forever grateful for the support I received from this program." - Albert P.


“I can't say enough about Transitions Wellness and all those who make it possible. Transitions Wellness gave me everything I needed to get my life back on track and progress it into a productive way of living. Everything that is needed for any and all who are looking for a way back from a place which most do not return is all there, or I wouldn't be here today to say so. I am both grateful and thankful to have been blessed with the opportunity to go and grow through their program. It's all here if you are ready." - Joseph R.
